Are You A Werewolf 4: Rock Ridge It’s been years since I’ve been back to this town, since I established myself in the process of saving the place. Let’s see if the punch-drunk former #2 is up yet.(Opens door) “Are we awake?” “We’re not sure, are we orange?” “Yes, we are.” “Then we’re awake, but we’re very puzzled. You weren’t orange when you left, Bart.” “As it turns out, making yourself orange is a great way to win a national election.” “Don’t even start…” “Anyway Jim, I’ve got opening night tickets to the new casino in (vaguely important nearby city). It’s a couple days ride away, but I’m sure it’ll be fine if you’re away for a bit.” “Yeah, why not, what are they going to do, fight over the ice cream shop adding a second flavor?” ________________________________________________ Rules taken from a variety of previous games. Game shamelessly stolen from Vesvius and Riley who ran the previous AYAW games. Rules 1. You may trust all information the moderator gives you. There will be zero bastard modding or false information. 2. Day 1 lasts 72 hours, subsequent days are 48 hours. All nights are 24 hours. 3. Do not lie about real-life commitments. Similarly, do not question the validity of other players’ real-life commitments. If you will be inactive for a prolonged period of time, inform the game host and I will do my best to replace you. 4. Mafia is a game about making arguments, but it is not a roleplaying game. Don’t go overboard. Lies are part of the game. Attacking someone’s credibility is part of the game. Do not overdo it. Everyone signed up to have fun, so keep the game fun. Reminder: This is only a subsection of the forum, and the forum's posting rules (particularly Rule 1 concerning proper English and legibility) apply. If you want people to put the effort into reading your posts, put the effort into making them readable. 5. Mafia is a game of analysis - removing a player’s ability to analyze things is against the spirit of the game. Keep references that only a handful of players would understand to a minimum. Encoded messages, hidden text, and other such methods are a no-no. Everything you have to say or not say should be clearly readable in your post by anyone. 6. Respect your fellow players, and their time. Don't be a jerk. Do not threaten to or actually get intentionally modkilled. Do not directly insult your fellow players - attack their play, but not them as a person. Mafia is a social game, and you are playing with real people, not just names on a screen. Respect other players' right to a good game. Give the game your best effort, no matter which team you're on. Mafia games require a time investment, and if you sign up, you're committing to spending that time and doing your part to contribute to a good game. 7. Do not edit your posts. Do not edit any QuickTopics you may be posting in. Do not quote information directly from your QuickTopic or your PM. Only living players may post in the game thread. Do not post in the game thread during the Night phase. 8. You may not privately communicate with anyone except the game moderator unless you're specifically allowed to do so. This includes using systems outside the scope of the game to communicate something game-related. Any game-related questions should be asked in your personal QuickTopic. Do not talk about your QuickTopic or conversations with the moderator in the thread. 9. Do not use out-of-game information (such as Skype, other forum activity, other mafia activity, or real-life activity) to generate reads. Do not use out-of-game information to exert pressure or influence on this game. Do not mention out of game information in the context of explaining or speculating on a player’s alignment in this game. 10. Votes must be BRIGHTLY COLORED, bolded, and on a separate line. Any votes not following this format will not be counted. You will be rewarded with frequent and (probably) accurate vote counts. 11. Mass claiming early in the game will not benefit town. You should probably avoid doing that. Attempting to decide if a player is town or mafia based on a flavor claim also has the potential to end badly. You’ve been warned. 12. Do not fake Daytime activations. There may or may not be daytime abilities, but faking them will get you a Stern Warning or possibly modkilled. 13. If you believe a player is violating one of these rules by letter, or in spirit, contact me in your QuickTopic. Do NOT address the potential violation in the thread, proceed on normally. I will handle it. 14. There are three possible roles here: Vanilla Town: The basic person. They have no special powers, and are armed with nothing but their wits and the vote.. They are aligned with the town. The Seer: The Only Town Aligned Power Role. Once per game, the seer can choose to investigate one townsperson and discover if they are town or werewolf. The Werewolves: The villains of this game. Once per night, the werewolves pick one person. That person is killed. 15. You may retract your votes up until there is a majority. Once the last person votes to make it a majority, the vote is locked in, and no further votes may be cast. There is NO soft lynching. 16. Once someone is lynched, their role will be revealed to the public. 17. 3. No editing your posts (Not that you can anymore). If you made a mistake, make a double post and let it automerge. Please average more than 2 posts per 24 hours!! 18. Moderator decisions are final. 19. Good luck, and have fun!
